Area Deanery of Lecale

Bright, Ballee, Killough & Rathmullan (LAMP)

  • Ballee
  • Bright
  • Killough St Anne
  • Rathmullan

The Churches in this group are part of the Lecale Area Mission Partnership (LAMP) – a team of 14 Churches in and around Downpatrick sharing together in the Mission of the Church. This cluster consists of:

Bright Church

Ballee Church

Killough Church (St Anne’s)

Rathmullan Church


These four churches seek to be welcoming and open for anyone.  

At the heart of everything we do is a desire to worship Jesus and share him with our community.

Generally our services follow the structures of the Church of Ireland Book of Common Prayer, in a relaxed and relatively informal setting.


To Bright Church: take the B176 from Downpatrick towards Killough. Four miles out from Downpatrick turn right up Bright Road towards Minerstown. The church is one mile on at the top of the hill.

To Ballee Church: take the B1 from Downpatrick towards Ardglass. Three miles out from Downpatrick turn left to Ballee. Four hundred yards later turn right and proceed 200 yards.

To Killough Church: take the A2 coastal road or take the B176 from Downpatrick to Killough. At the T junction turn right along the shore. Church Avenue is 1st left after 300 yards.

Rathmullan Church is approx 5 miles from Downpatrick and overlooks Tyrella Beach, about 1 mile from Minerstown on the Ballylucas Road.
